Your word is not the gospel or the end-all-be-all because you profess to be more knowledgeable while hiding behind a keyboard like the rest of us. If you seriously hope to help prospective students choose and chance law schools, you should become a consultant and do it in person or at least via Skype. And if you do want to respond to 0Ls on TLS, the least you could be is polite. My comment was harmless, at best.
But your comment wasn't "harmless, at best."

You admit that you're a 0L, but then you claim that CCN should be changed to CCNP or CCP? What's your basis for this, besides a cursory glance at one year's worth of BL+FedClerk outcomes? You might think your comment is completely innocent, but spouting personal opinions with little basis and experience is potentially harmful to people on this forum seeking legitimate info and advice.

Seriously? Wtfareyousmoking? Besides the potential harm of misinformation, having to spend the time to read through your two long responses with such little value added to the conversation in itself was a dreadful experience.
My comment was harmless. I literally prefaced it by saying "0L here." If someone is on this forum and seeks legitimate info and advice from someone who starts their post with such a disclaimer, you should be taking it out on them...not me.
Again, I merely suggested that Penn and Cornell's employment numbers are better than their perceived ranking/tier and deserve some more recognition than usual. And yes, it was based on a cursory glance...but I don't see any harm in that. One shouldn't be required to conduct empirical and longitudinal research on BL+FC placement numbers to comment on a TLS thread.
You and Brut seem to be taking a couple comments I made on this thread (for the last time...with a clear disclaimer that I am a 0L) and blowing it up into some meltdown over 0L-propagated misinformation.
